Mannie Fresh Discusses Working With Lil Wayne & Tha Carter 5 Album

Mannie Fresh recently chopped it up with Andre Grant from HipHopDX about working with Lil Wayne and the upcoming Tha Carter V album.

The former Cash Money producer and artist mentions that him and Weezy have always had a great relationship when they work together whether it be back in the day or today.

He also didn’t want to judge the C5 album when he was asked about it and says that he would rather let the people decide where the project will rank in Tunechi‘s discography when they hear it.

You can what Mannie said after the jump below!

“We got great chemistry. We’ve always been A-100 with each other, regardless of what was going on with me and Cash Money or whatever. We just picked up where we left off and we’re doing music. That’s what we’re doing now.”

“I’ma leave that one up to the people. I just know how to do good music. I don’t know how to tell nobody this is the best album ever. I will let the people judge that.”

    • fewcha

      don’t get too hyped because it will be pushed back nearer the time of release

      • YmCmBxOvOxOfWgKtA

        Nah, the album has already been pushed back once. If it was going to be pushed back it would have been done already; In august or September. They wouldn’t push the album back so close to the release date. Plus mad people in YM like Euro, Mack, Tina, Flow are all posting about it.
        If by some chance it does get pushed back it will be because other albums are coming out around that date. it would only be for a few week though.

  • Keyz

    Why is everyone promoting c5 other than Wayne???

    • Cause he doesn’t do interviews anymore unless they are about sports.

      • LilI22

        I blame Tez

      • devin

        SHUT YO DUMB WANNABE KNOW IT ALL ASS UP. HE JUST DID XXL NOT TOO LONG AGO

    • JC Freeman

      Bc wayne’s team having people do it to make it seem so important which we know majority of the world will forget about the album after a few listens

      • triggacity_813

        Bruh google Carter 5 anticipation & see that everybody looking to see what Wayne does.

        • JC Freeman

          I know. Nicki is #1 Kdot #2 Weezy #3

          But fuck CV I wanna hear Devol.

          CV just going to be random shit.

          Neither Devol or the other album will drop. Wayne & his team are flakely & don’t keep their word.. We all knew Weezy Wednesdays was going to flake

          • Guhodlee

            You stupid af if you think nicki is #1

            • [Original] Gudda Gudda

              he really is a faggot

          • Yea what happened to like father like son II…Devol….cant feel my face….and wtf about the track “sidebitch” its been finished why not release it…we heard the snippet like 3 months ago…..I miss the days where wayne had music coming out every fucking day! How great would that be if he did a run like that again? Haha

          • [Original] Gudda Gudda

            rofl
            thats only what 1 writer for complex thinks
            you making out like them top 3 numbers are facts and what the whole world is thinking
            get the fuck outta here faggot

    • True…I get the feeling that wayne kinda dont care as much….I mean like he said “aint got nothing to prove, unless its in court”. He knows no matter what he will go platinum.

  • kgotso

    Impatiently waiting for C5 and screw Tyga

    • Patrick H

      You can’t blame Tyga, you can only blame the label for not letting him drop his album when he wants to.

      • I blame Tez.

        • Aye

          I blame Mack

          • fewcha

            that fat fuck probably jealous tyga can drop an album but he can’t

      • mortimerr2014

        But that’s how the music insdustry and most labels are they choose when shit drops. Ain’t you even seen drake and Josh go Hollywood nigga?!

    • fewcha

      why?
      they holding him back
      they only focus on wayne, drake and nicki
      it won’t be long until the label falls apart
      and then nicki and drake both become solo artists

      • wasTheDeal

        I see that happening soon yo

  • Currenc Laflare Deshawn Whitt

    can’t wait til c5 come out

    • Patrick H

      Me neither.

  • Patrick H

    That doesn’t sound too good Mannie not judging the album even though I understand he doesn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up or down.

    • youngtune410

      I dont think he’d be involved if it wasnt good mannie is very picky with collaborators

  • That picture is super throwback.

  • Sam K

    Carter V ain’t coming on October 28th. listen to Drake, he said “We already got spring 2015 poppin'” “Carter V” and “Views From The 6” comes in spring 2015. thats why they are gonna do “Drake vs Lil Wayne” again in 2015.

    • Aye

      After the line about spring pooping he then listed all his OVO artists…

      • Aye

        Popping*

      • fewcha

        exactly
        these idiots are dumb

      • Sam K

        no man people don’t understand. it’s all promotion. Remember in 2007 they said Carter 3 was gonna be released in 2007 but it got released in 2008. this time they are saying Carter 5 gonna be released in 2014 but it is coming in 2015. YMCMB been promoting C5 since the beginning of 2014. and Drake is hinting that shit is about to pop in spring 2015.

        • [Original] Gudda Gudda

          lol at this retarded fish
          ppl like you shouldnt be listening to hiphop
          go listen to katy perry

        • mortimerr2014

          It came out in 08 instead of 07 ONLY because the original music got leeked. Not for promotion it was just an added bonus

      • mortimerr2014

        Right he doesn’t say Wayne droppin

    • fewcha

      no he talking about his crew smh

    • Coop

      Almost every Weezy Wednesday was a day late or wasn’t released at all. There is no way the album is going to be on time either. Not hating just being realistic

      • YoungJT1092

        Do you feel as though we’ll get a mixtape or leak by the end of the year though? I feel like they may do a S4TW2 or something to hold us for all these bullshti release dates…

        • [Original] Gudda Gudda

          they have to
          we would of gone a whole year with no new weezy project
          thats never been done before

        • Coop

          Ya I could definitely see a mixtape once some good beats come out

  • Eshall Flawless

    Always genuinely like Mannie Fresh. He seems to be one of those awesome people aside from his public image. Glad he & Wayne are working together again.

  • JC Freeman

    Only song I want to hear is Wayne’s world & any song with legit features in it.. No euro, drake, or nicki. Drake really does take the longevity out of any song

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      i forgot about that song damn
      its the one thats supposed to make rappers want to retire right??
      i want the song with bono from u2

  • JC Freeman

    Pay attention… Why would Tyga say the music industry is of the devil and he is a,man of God & is now leaving YMCMB as well.. Wake up.. L.A niggas don’t play that.

    Tyga use to have more substance but dumbed down to appeal to females to twerk to . Tyga will body Wayne.. This isn’t 06 -08 anymore. The rap game isn’t full of one hit wonders & south dance music for Wayne to stand out .

    • 504HardHead

      Sit yo high on PCP ass down! Tyga a house nigga that make strip club music. All his shit trash. Fuck u and whoever don’t like it

      • triggacity_813

        Exactly bruh since lime & coconuts nigga been garbage

      • JC Freeman

        quite frankly.. The base of ymcmb including Wayne are wanna be’s and fakes & liars

        • TwizzieTwitch

          How you gonna be a 504hardhead but than diss one of the main rappers from there

          • [Original] Gudda Gudda

            he dissing tyga and tyga aint from the 504

        • TwizzieTwitch

          oh shit wrong one

        • TwizzieTwitch

          how are they wanna be’s when they really do this shit and have the awards to back it up?

        • TwizzieTwitch

          agian i read the comment wrong. w whatever fuck your opinion!

        • 504HardHead

          How bout u run up on one of em and knock out…Nah what that make yo ass?

          • 504HardHead

            Fake and sleep

    • triggacity_813

      So Wayne didn’t body tyga on good day ? Or loyal ?Or even lime & coconuts when he first came out but alrite bruh you got it

      • JC Freeman

        Tyga will body wayne. When your deep into the Wayne delusion. The sound of his voice gets you pumped & you believe anything he say is fire. I’ve been there

        • TwizzieTwitch

          You is high as fuck. i mean tyga is dope i dig his blakc thoguhts mixtapes but besides that the only album i i dug was hotel california cuz that rack city voice getting old. if he kepthis flow from that celebration song with the game he’d be dope again.

          • [Original] Gudda Gudda

            his black thoughts mixtape
            exactly
            do you know how old that is rofl??
            if weezy fell off then tyga fell off much harder
            his music sucks compared to how careless world was
            at least weezy can still rap

        • triggacity_813

          I’m not in any delusions cause I can admit when a certain rapper can body Wayne ( jay, nas, em, kanye) but in all the songs they done Wayne body tyga.. It’s not that I think everything Wayne say is great, I know everything tyga says garbage..

      • Prince_Academics

        Wayne bodied that nigga on 500 degrees, destroyed both Tyga’s versus

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      naw even if the new weezy aint like old weezy the new weezy would still body tyga
      tyga done fell off so much
      i miss when he used to make good songs like on his careless world album

  • Wayniacs

    Love how absolutley nobody has mentioned DOA which is “da other album” !but what I thought secretly stood for “drake on the album” like a duo album. But he said we getting two albums. Wayne fans gotta hold weeZy to his word nigga be lying

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      why would we be talking about DOA when we havent even got C5 yet??

  • JC Freeman

    Beat is nice. Just hope Wayne don’t fuck it up making it worthless garbage.. Bc if Wayne was spittin in 06-08 how he spits now.. You would think it’s trash.

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      he wont
      mannie wouldnt let him

  • Youngstoner Ystoner

    where is wayne hi wass more in carter v when he wass doing the song we alright. Bat now mabe hi is working on the music we will see

  • TwizzieTwitch

    I feel like C5 will drop on October 28th because wayne in this era now he usually makes 15-16 songs on a carter album back in the day it was like 20. He can only drop so many songs cuz he has, Grindin, Krazy, And believe me out. i mena he can drop 2 more max but that leaves us with 10 new songs which sounds like alot but isn’t. The problem is these singles are getting NO RADIO PLAY. i swear to gosh grindin would be number 1 with some promo. And like wayne said in his CRWN interview he basically looks at himself at a young OG now in rap. theres no need for promotion when hes not the one poppin anymore. i’ma big fan pf wayne but to act like people are still checking for him like in 06-10 is just fooling yourself. i honestly think wayne recognizes that and wants to drop a nice ass album for his fans. It’s not about the numbers this time its about the legacy.

    • triggacity_813

      Ppl still checking for Wayne on Twitter but you right..he don’t care about the numbers. This album strictly for his fans & hes gonna make it as classic as possible

      • TwizzieTwitch

        know what i mean? Whether it drops in October some other time i jsut really feel he dont care about numbers just giving us that real.

        • triggacity_813

          Ya I feels you..I don’t think any of them songs gonna be on C5..maybe on Krazy. Those were all promo songs to get ppl looking for Wayne again

          • mortimerr2014

            Right then c5 drops with all unheard shit that’s what I’m hoping for

      • SeattleAtHome

        I agree…sad thing is if believe me krazy and grindin on the album it hurts the chances of CV being classic Or getting numbers…sadly..those r his worst 3 singles..

    • mortimerr2014

      A good start would be Wayne with his 18m followers where all his fans are at to tweet about cv and new singles and not Mack maine. I never understood why Wayne himself wouldn’t retweet that or him just do it that’s where everyone’s looking

  • Youngstoner Ystoner

    mabe wayne is commenting right now. Mabe hi cange his name

  • Nijee

    I Think C5 Is Going Be Great Album Because Wayne Is So Passionate About Tha Carter V That’s Why It’s Coming Out In 2015 Because He Taking His Time

  • Nijee

    I Think Tyga Going Leave Young Money & Go To MMG Or G.O.O.D Music

  • that kush

    Am I the only one that saw Mack Maine’s tweets lately?? He dissing Tyga tough! Ctfuuu

    • Tunechis_bitch

      Did you see how tyga replied tho

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      no the whole world saw them you retarded fish

  • Youngstoner Ystoner

    i think 2015 will be waynes year, not this year. Mabe they waiting for a good time to drop the album

    • Won A Gold Medal and A Gold Be

      Actually this summer was a perfect time to drop it. Nobody had any music out then and C5 had major hype cause of D’use and believe me.

  • TwizzieTwitch

    Hold up..I know this is a wayne fansite but gotta defend my nigga tyga real quick. hes where i got my flow from. this dude tyga keeps it real, hes got a good head on his shoulders you can tell from his tweets.he made mack maine look stupid. Tyga doesn;t deserve any hate. i mean you can;t tell me if your album been finished and you jsut waiting to release it for your fans and they wont let you, you wouldn;t be mad? cmon now…. Yo tyga bout that spitting shit.

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      tyga will do better off the label anyway
      i want gudda to go independent too

      • Tuned

        Gudda won’t do that though. He’s too loyal to weezy

        • [Original] Gudda Gudda

          i know
          and he probably knows he will never ever release a studio album too

    • Tyga been trash ever since he married that stripper and of course his album goin be pushed to the side for a while when you got Young Money’s big 3 albums dropping. Drake, Wayne and Nicki rap better than Tyga.

      • TwizzieTwitch

        when you an artist you drop your art. Yuo shouldn;t be told what you can and can not do to your creations. Thats just plain wrong, tyga got signed to release albums not to be a bench warmer like gudda gudda. even though i dig the fuck outta gudda no disrespect to him or the management system i just think its not right

  • triggacity_813

    Only good thing about a C5 push back is that we’ll definitely get a mixtape before it comes out..low key want that to happen but I want C5 already.
    Tez Fucking Up

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      shut the fuck up and stop saying shit like “we’ll definitely get a mixtape” like its been confirmed
      nigga you guessing smfh

      • Weezy Da God

        You a fake ass lame muh fucka

  • YoungJT1092

    Tez better be smart and drop a Mannie song as a single for the radio…if he does, I will never complain about him again.

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      even if he dropped it tonight i still think it would be too late

      • YoungJT1092

        When they dropped A Milli wasnt that like 2 weeks beforr the album?

  • DaneWayne

    About Carter V:
    But do nobody get it?! Remember a few months ago, that they would do a “beyonce” and just post it when nobody knows. I promise you, they will do something like that. Dont be worried. I think they got it all figured out… And they will try somthing simalar or new !

    Weezy a beast, sit down and wait for it man. It will come, when the time is right! Peace from Denmark

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      • CV

        Nah I understand that homie. I love Wayne and YM to death no homo but they do be fuckin up they have alot of talent but holding everyone back with the exception of drake Nicki and Wayne

        • [Original] Gudda Gudda

          they only focus of them 3 artists
          tyga will be better off the label
          the label is turning wack anyway

          • 504HardHead

            Just like currensy and lil chukee huh? Gtfoh nigga! Tune made all them on Ym.

        • Get It

          Lil Wayne Nicki are coming out this year. Why would any label put Tyga out around this time?

      • jaleel bell

        Lil Wayne not puttin his music out because he is really against tyga dating kylie Jenner because 1st of all she’s 17 and 2nd, she hangs out with Lil Wayne daughter.and so he allegedly feels like his daughter shouldn’t be hanging out with rappers.

    • [Original] Gudda Gudda

      yea but it falls out lol
      look at lebron
      they fixed his hairline
      then a week later it went back to what it was lol

    • Weeezyzyzyzyzyzyzyzy

    “I don’t know how to tell nobody this is the best album ever. I will let the people judge that.”

    fuck

    • mortimerr2014

      He’s saying that his opinion is that it is the best album ever but he shouldn’t be the one to decide the people should

  • Sandile Hlongwane

    Don’t get why tyga is mad though he’s the 1 that tweeted that his album will b dropping NOV. 18 and its not that day yet.

    • RJ Brunson

      He need to play his role. Music industry is a business. Fuck YM look like dropping Tyga when Tune, Nicki & Drake ALL bout to drop. Three of the biggest names in the rap biz and Tyga wanna drop too? Lol

      • triggacity_813

        Ya I feel like they looking out for this nigga..ppl thinking tune gon flop I can’t imagine what ppl thinking bout tyga. He should drop a mixtape or some shit

        • RJ Brunson

          Yea I agree. Drop a tape and then drop the album after tune and them drop theirs

  • mastermind

    Can’t wait 4 C muthafuckin 5.. Oct 28 baby!!

  • Tuned

    Ym has to get it together, Tyga might leave,it’s possible that Drake will leave he’s shouting OVO more than young money, then it’ll be just Nicki and Weezy, really who cares about Chanel and twist?

    • RJ Brunson

      Cuz OVO is his label. Same reason why tune says YM more than he says CM

      • Tuned

        You’re right but he should still be repping ym as well since he’s on the label

        • aka remix baby

          drakes whole verse on believe me….

        • devin

          DRAKE AND WAYNE HAVE CUSTOME YM/OVO CHAINS. THEY WORE EM ON TOUR FOOL

    • mastermind

      They not gonn leave.. they stay loyal..

      • Tuned

        I thought the same thing about Curren$y too…

      • RJ Brunson

        Tyga def gone. You seen what Mack said.

    • triggacity_813

      Drake & ovo just like weezy & ym..they own shit but they still loyal to the home team.
      Drake to YM, Weezy to CM

  • triggacity_813

    Can we discuss how Gucci still in jail & dropping more music than weezy..smh #FreeGuwop

    • Tuned

      Smh. Gucci drops song after song after song

      • triggacity_813

        I swear bruh..its like Wayne in 06-08.

  • RJ Brunson

    Gucci >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jeezy.

    • triggacity_813

      Real shit

      • RJ Brunson

        Jeezy became lame once Gucci shot his folk. No disrespect.

    • Tuned

      I have to disagree

      • RJ Brunson

        True. In my opinion, jeezy turned his trap music, to trash music. All he should rap about is trap shit. Gucci did “it’s gucci time” realized that it was PURE GARBAGE, never did music like that again, continued with his trap music, and is thee number 1 trap rapper of all time. Nobody fuckin with Gucci when it comes to that. Gucci prolly the realest rapper out here.

  • Realshitboiboi
